Romance is a fantasy best enjoyed by two.

Often people embark on Romance for amusement. Remember “The Love Boat”? Romance is an adventure during events that end naturally, and the emotional involvement is mostly circumstantial; it’s out of the moment and not necessarily for the future, or because of the person’s qualities beyond the superficial. Romance is a fantasy best enjoyed by two.

That’s the primary reason one embraces it.

What is it like to not love? Sadly it is so common it has a name. “Anhedonia,” it’s the inability to feel pleasure; when we become numb to it all. You don’t feel bad either. That’s the primary reason one embraces it. To not feel pain, but you can’t choose it that way. It’s either happy and sad, or nothing at all.

the feelings associated with being in love or by loving someone, those are real

Yes, love is an abstraction. It’s an idea. However the feelings associated with being in love or by loving someone, those are real. What you do you feel. You also feel when you think, but that’s a different feeling. It can turn into a headache if you think too much.
